Abstract:The purpose of this qualitative descriptive study was to describe the experiences of military wives whose spouses have been deployed to a combat zone. Nine military wives whose spouses had been deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq participated in this study. Data were generated through unstructured interviews, followed by qualitative content analysis of the transcribed text and interpretive description. Family stress theory provided a perspective to understand the findings. Findings indicated that the wives experiences were situated in the experience of time, namely war-time, predeployment, deployment, reunion, re-adjustment, and adjustment. The experience of relationship with self, husband, family, and social support was embedded into the themes. Four major themes emerged: Anticipating disconnecting, Preparing for disconnecting, Being disconnected, and Re-connecting. Participants described the challenges faced during each period of deployment, discussed the lessons learned, and reported looking toward the future with renewed hope. Implications for nursing practice and nursing research are addressed.
